Who were they interviewing? The people sound like idiots.

If the guy didn't know that Palin was running with McCanin, then you can't accept anything that he says. He has no clue what he's talking about.

I think it just shows that some/most Americans aren't educated on the policies and beleifs of the candidates when they walk into the polling station.

Exactly. I didn't think it was that hard to find out what was "shameful" about this clip. It shows that people on both sides vote without having any idea what they are voting for.

What it is, is absolutely ridiculous!

These are the people who voted Obutma in!

He won because he is black and thats it!

You take away all the idiots like the morons in these interviews and McCain wins because the educated people would have voted him in.

Instead all the dumbasses of this country flooded the polls to vote black!

And when Obutma screws the pooch, these tools will claim ignorance while they are cashing thier reparations check!

IT IS A FA-KING TRAVESTY! WE DESERVE BETTER! :mad:

There are WAY too many broad-brush strokes to even begin to discuss this post.

sorry if i couldnt read your mind,and know what you ment by "shameful"...i thought maybe you ment it was shameful that stern did this,or the fact the people they interviewed were so beyond uniformed.....and thanks for saying there were uniformed people on both sides though,as some people seem to have trouble to admit there were people like this on both sides of this election...sad thing is,its those people that usually decided things like this.....and not the informed people that vote because of issues and things like that:wave:......Exactly. I didn't think it was that hard to find out what was "shameful" about this clip. It shows that people on both sides vote without having any idea what they are voting for.

I agree SC, and at the same time, many don't understand the repercussions of the policies they support. For instance, Obama ran on the Robin Hood on steroids platform which made no sense as a solution to our current economic crisis. He swore his "trickle up" economics would fix the economy, not believing it himself, but knowing the average person who is uneducated and ignorant about economics would take it hook, line and sinker. It worked. As soon as he was elected, he completely reversed his position on his "tax the hell out of the evil job creators and give it to the more deserving" plan. He lied from the beginning because he knew it would get him elected.

The real magic trick will be to shift the blame for all of his position changes on Bush and the republicans, and with the complicity of the media, he will likely come away unscathed.

Wouldn't it be cool if, in order to vote, you had to answer 5 questions correctly. 5 easy questions, like:

Who was the first President?
Who is the Republican VP candidate?
Who is the Democratic VP candidate?
How long does the President serve?
Who is the current President?

I guarantee you a full 25% of our population would fail to answer all 5 correctly.

Very true, maybe you should have to take an I.Q. test also?

As a side note I think there should be a correlation between your I.Q. and the horsepower of your car.

He pulled off a great magic trick. Trickle up economics, what a crock. Who here has been hired by a poor person? He definitely got alot of people to drink the Kool-Aide!

Never said that wasn't the case! I'm POSITIVE there were some " I aint votin for a black man" votes. MY point is that the color of either canidates skin should NEVER be an issue! And those interviews proved that it was an issue and we deserve BETTER than that! Because of the whole race thing we now have a president that has more skeletons in his closet than a cemetery! They were all ignored by people like those idiots because all they saw was skin color!

There are WAY too many broad-brush strokes to even begin to discuss this post.

It's actually quite narrow! Idiots should not be allowed to vote! I don't give a damn what color they are!

Did you all ever stop to think that maybe neither were responsible for the current crisis? that in reality it isn't a crisis but just the backend of a natural cycle.

It is only a crisis because of spoiled gemme gemme gemme adults running around that think hardships should never happen.

You scrunch, save, move in with parents or children move in with you or family... combine meals so that it is cheaper, etc. etc. and make it through.

Welcome to the real world.

That would be nice, but the ACLU and the NAACP would be on that so fast it'd make your head spin.

ACLU maybe. NAACP I'm not so sure...that would be awfully close to admission that there is a real gap in knowledge between the races. Besides, this isn't about race, and it's not an exclusionary move. It's simply a check that people have a rudimentary knowledge of the system they are voting in.

You're right, but the NAACP would still be on it regardless of how it looks, and would certainly claim it exclusionary. It would also weed out about 95% of college student voters as well, which actually would be a good thing.

If 95% of college voters can't answer these questions than this country is so doome it won't even matter who gets elected.

I am currently taking some college classes right now and we have had some political discussions. It absolutely amazed me how ignorant these people were. One girl said she voted for Obama because he was cute and that she knew nothing of his policies. Scary frickin thought! I would guess that, yes, 95% of the class knew nothing of the policies of the candidates.

There are historical reasons the NAACP would be on it. The literacy and understanding tests were used fraudulently and applied selectively before they were outlawed. Google the Alabama literacy test sometime...and keep in mind that the local registrar had full discretion. He could ask every question, a few questions, or waive it, and one wrong answer was enough to disqualify you.

I don't think you would see it used for the purpose of racial discrimination today, but you would see both sides use it to disfranchise voters who might vote the "wrong" way.
